    Hi all,

    My team and I are looking into an implementation of TMF 620 that will be broadly based on the Catalog Management tool that we develop.

    We are at the beginning of this journey and have several basic questions... one of which concerns Entity Lifecycle States which appears on page 11 of "TMF620_Product_Catalog_Management_API_REST_Specification_v4-1-0". Given that this appears in the "Sample Use Cases" section, should we assume this this is the fixed lifecycle state machine that a TMF 620 Open API implementation should adhere to? Should we just hold to the name of the states or can we introduce or as these just examples? When it comes to transitioning from one state to the other - is this fixed also? I'm trying to understand what flexibility there is in this lifecycle setup.
